Career Path - Part 1

It is a Monday morning and I choose a heavy topic to blog about..hee. Oh well, just think of it as a sharing tips. I am not a veteran in career guidance or anything, but I would like to share the path I have been through and landed the job I really love :)

The year I went through my internship program for 6 months. Being an accounting student, we have been instilled with the idea of being an auditor. The idea is that be an auditor for at least 3 years, apply your MIA membership and tada! You are now have the advantage of demanding high salary (seriously? hah!)

Being a nerd  determined student, I applied many auditing position for my internship. Somehow, they offer me tax positions, and at that point of time I was like "Tax??? thanks". Plus, I never really a good student when it comes to tax. But time to secure a placement for that internship is running out. So, yea..whatever,, tax pun tax la. See, I can't even see tax also can offer satisfying job scope and ehem..high paid salary.

Finally, I did my internship program where I was attached with the tax department in one of the Big 4 firm. It is in KL Sentral, well I think I already gave you the clue which is the firm :P Fast forward, towards the end of my internship, I have one aim, to continue my career in tax. The reason being, tax is a complex subject (read: you need to love to read and that reading includes laws and regulations stuffs) and a very wide area to explore. So, tax it is!

I've graduated in Feb 2012. But, I began my job hunting since December 2011. The thought of not getting employed scared me to death at that time. Again, I applied to so many accounting firm, medium and big. Various interviews for about 3 weeks and finally I got THE CALL (read: offer. Yeay!) With a starting salary of RM 2,550, it is a big amount for a young single fresh graduate. So, yup, I started my very first job in April that year :D

Working in a tax consulting firm includes long hours, submission deadlines, not so many benefits etc. On the plus side, your technical knowledge is developed, closed knitted environment! Ann I have a cool boss as until now he remains as my reference :)

When I planned on getting married.. I started to look else where..reasons being... to be continued in Part 2..hihi

Just Because May Is Our Month

Hello May :)


I realized that this May marked a decade of us (my husband and I) have known each other. The guy whom I barely spoke with at that point of time. 

We went to the same matriculation college and were classmates. But, being an introvert, both of us just passed by each other for 1 whole year. Haha. Fast forward to today, 10 years later, we are happily married and Hanna is part of us :)

Jodoh tu rahsia Allah. Yes, indeed very true.
How do you know that he/she is your mr/mrs right? Well, you will know.

So, for those who are still looking out for their love of life, yours might be passing by you every single day. To you, my other half, may we have many more years to cherish, love <3 p="">

10th May, Hanna is already 1 year 10 months. Happy 22 months baby! Yes, you are a toddler but still my baby even you are 22! Well, Hanna already started to throw tantrums, a lot. Plus, the hitting and biting. And motherhood for me has started to test my patience. Hopefully, this phase passes by soon.

Till then, bye!
